Tim Bowness of art-pop duo No-Man will this July release Stupid Things That Mean The World, a new solo album and swift follow up to last year’s Abandoned Dancehall Dreams
The album features members of the No-Man live band (Stephen Bennett, Michael Bearpark and Andrew Booker), Colin Edwin from Porcupine Tree, and contributions from the likes of David Rhodes and Phil Manzanera. Bowness and Bruce Soord handle production duties.
Like last years’ album this will be available in some very special formats. A Double CD ‘mediabook’ edition includes a companion disc of alternate mixes and demos (including an unreleased No-Man demo from 1994), and there will also be a very limited – and hand-numbered – transparent vinyl version, in a gatefold sleeve (which comes with a CD as well).
Even better, if you pre-order from the Burning Shed online store you get an exclusive signed postcard and a FLAC download of a 5.1 mix of the album by Bruce Soord (which will be available on the day of release).
Stupid Things That Mean The World is released on 17 July 2015.
